In 850 CE Alba (present-day Scotland), it is night. A storm rages on the Great Sea and a Viking drakkar is shipwrecked against the cliffs. The only prisoner on the ship, a Northman, miraculously manages to escape. Fleeing from his past, from unforgiving nature and armed only with luck, the man moves into the clearings of the coast. Foreigner and hated in this land, the skilled Viking warrior will clash with the inhabitants of Alba, while a powerful witch watches him. Fighting for his life... surviving for revenge. A Northman.
